Blue light (HEV light, High Energy Visible) naturally surrounds us every day and in small doses these rays have very little negative effect. However blue light transmitted from computers, mobile phones and televisions, which have become an indispensable part of our everyday lives, pose a risk to skin health that should not be underestimated. This is because the blue light from artificial light sources such as smartphones and laptops directly hit our skin from a very short distance. The average person spends more than 10 hours a day in front of a screen. During this time, the blue light can penetrate into deeper layers of the skin causing collagen and elastin molecules to break down and free radicals to form, thus accelerating the natural ageing process.
The new Blue Light Defence & Moisturising Mist by SUSANNE KAUFMANN was developed with the aim of protecting the skin from environmental damage, renewing the skin system and boosting the body's own repair mechanisms to protect the skin from long term damage. The spray contains powerful natural ingredients such as Ectoin and Q10. The ingredient Soliberine, derived from the Butterfly Bush has been proven to protect the skin from the damaging effects of light rays, infrared rays and blue light.
Sustainability, the use of natural renewable resources, cutting-edge science and intelligent product design has been the cornerstones of the SUSANNE KAUFMANN brand for almost two decades. The bottle of the new Blue Light Defence & Moisturising Mist is made from 100% recycled "post-consumer material". The spray is packaged in FSC certified paper that is fully recyclable. This reinforces the brand's commitment to sustainable manufacturing and is the next step towards even more sustainable product design.
Key ingredients: Butterfly bush flower extract (Buddleja officinalis) prevents pigmentation spots and skin ageing and protects against skin irritation and dryness. The ingredient has been shown to protect the skin from the harmful effects of UV and infrared rays and blue light. This powerful natural ingredient also has an antioxidant effect against free radicals, stimulates cellular detoxification systems.
Ectoin and Q10 have an intensive moisturising effect and promote collagen production, minimising premature skin ageing and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Several studies (ex-vivo) showed that Ectoin is able to prevent oxidative damage in skin induced by visible/blue light.
Silk extract regenerates and soothes stressed and reddened skin.
Susanne’s tip?“I use the mist daily after my cleanser and before my daily skincare routine. This way, it can be absorbed directly and protects the skin from negative environmental influences such as air pollution and radiation from digital devices." - Founder, Susanne Kaufmann.
After cleansing, spritz generously onto the face, neck and décolletage and allow to absorb into the skin. Then apply the daily care products. Can be refreshed several times a day if necessary and can also be used wonderfully as a setting mist to fix make-up. Use daily for best possible protection.
